After the conclusion of Beer Week and Bikefest last week, Sacramento needs a break…correct? Wrong. With Second Saturday only a couple days away, it’s a good time to figure out how to celebrate it. So, we’ve taken the task of laying it out for you.
Second Saturday Sidewalk Sale
Spanglish Art Gallery and Boutique
905 23rd St.
Noon – 6 p.m.
Spanglish is holding their biannual sidewalk sale on Saturday and all of their sidewalk merchandise will be 20-60 percent off. Other vendors will be present to sell their handmade crafts. If you are interested in vending, contact email@example.com.
1818 11th St.
4 – 9 p.m.
March is Abstracts exhibit month for Vox, a volunteer run gallery. Sixteen artists submitted their work to a juried panel and according to Examiner.com, they are as follows: Rebecca Lu-Way, Kelly O’Neill, Christian Cinder, Laura Twining, Justin Buell, Elaine Hudson, Heather Olson, Susan Raines, Tereze Lear, Aaron Winters, James Stafford, John Swierzbin, Janet Regan, Daniel Mendoza, Jim Shepherd Jr, and Jill Allyn Stafford.
There will also be a live painting by Daniel Mendoza and refreshments will be available. With the early opening, you will still have time to check out the other events as well.
This happens to fall in the midst of Vox’s Fun-raiser where they are raising money to keep Vox alive, so this would be a great time to visit the gallery and show your support.
John Stuart Berger’s “50” Show
1100 65th St.
6 – 9 p.m.
Local artist John Berger, who has been painting over 20 years, will be celebrating his 50th birthday at this Second Saturday exhibit. He has asked several friends to join in the celebration. According to Fe Gallery’s website, the artists are as follows:
Skinner, Robert Bowen, Matt136, Kim Scott, Carrie Cottini, Allen Carrier, Mark Fox, Val Fernandez, Melanie Bown, Ianna Frisby, Kevin Seconds, Kepi, Gioia Fonda, Mick Sheldon, Stephanie Skalisky, Gale Hart, Andy Steele, Paul Imagine, Bruce Gossett, Jose Di Gregorio, Nathan Cordero, Danny Sheible, Jackson Berger and more.
Music will be preformed by: Jackson Griffith, Kepi Ghoulie, Bobby Jordan, Kevin and Allyson Seconds, and Andy Sheppard.
Sent – A Mail Art Show
212 13th St.
6 – 11 p.m.
In early Feb., Milk Galley announced they were holding a mail art show and asked that art be mailed to them to prepare for the show. And that’s exactly what happened. Milk now has art from Sacramento and all over the world and they will be proudly displaying it at their Second Saturday exhibit. DJ Cactus Pete will be supplying the musical entertainment.
To get a preview of the art, you head down on Thursday from 6-9 p.m. and listen to Mark Lipson sing Sinatra, Berlin, Torme and more. You can also check out John Berger’s work while you’re there, so it’s like a 2-for-1 deal, but free. Awesome.
